When you end stages of cancer, do you just stop taking Seroquel?

It really depends on your desires and needs. Do you want to stop taking it? It could mean you experience withdrawals on top of everything else, so that's something to consider. Also, if you do really want to come off it then your doctor could potentially prescribe a sedative/benzodiazepine/other to help you stay comfortable. I hope things work out how you want them to - best wishes.

Hi R,
If it's the end stage when pills are getting too hard to swallow, it's not unreasonable to stop all unnecessary medication. Most people don't realize but when you are at that stage pills can be doing more harm than good. Examples... BP and diuretics. The BP goes lower than normal and the body goes into a natural state of dehydration.
Seroquel needs to be a doctor decision.
I hope the person is under hospice care.
Best wishes to you.
